2018 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2018 Ford Escape

  • In genuine Hyundai form, the 2018 Tucson is very competitively-priced and offers great value with an MSRP of only $22,550. You'll have to take more out of your bank account for the 2018 Ford Escape, with an MSRP beginning at $23,940. What will you do with those savings?
  • For your peace-of-mind, the new Tucson model is covered by Hyundai's Assurance Powertrain Limited Warranty for a whopping 10-years/100,000-miles. Unfortunately for Ford Escape owners, the powertrain is protected by a warranty for only 5-years/60,000-miles.
  • Thanks to the available hands-free smart liftgate, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson will open up the trunk for you automatically, without any kicking or fuss necessary. The 2018 Escape model doesn't make things quite as easy as this.
  • To enhance looks and to improve safety, the Hyundai Tucson can be equipped with both available LED Daytime Running Lights as well as HID Headlights with Dynamic Bending Light. These two visibility-improving features are nowhere to be found for the new Ford Escape.
  • The new Tucson offers available Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, while again, the new Escape fails to. The 2018 Hyundai Tucson proudly won a 2018 Top Safety Pick Award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and you guessed, the 2018 Ford Escape was unable to.
  • Ventilated front seats and heated seats in back are optional add-ons for the new Hyundai Tucson. It's the same story here, as these desirable amenities to keep everyone comfortable are not offered at all for the new Escape model.
  • If you appreciate interior roominess, know that the cabin of the 2018 Tucson is indeed larger and more spacious than that of the 2018 Ford Escape. Sit back and relax with the new Hyundai Tucson and over 100 cubic feet of passenger volume inside.
